Jacqueline Boutin received the Ph.D. degree in physical methods in remote sensing from the University Paris VII, Paris, France, in 1990. She is currently research director at CNRS/Laboratoire d’Océanographie et du Climat-Expérimentations et Approches Numériques, Paris.
She widely study the air-sea exchange of CO2, using autonomous instruments (CARIOCA sensors) and satellite measurements (wind speed, SST, ocean color, now SSS from the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) satellite mission).
She was responsible for a large program of CARIOCA drifters deployment in the Southern Ocean (EU FP6 CarboOcean and FP7 Carbochange projects) and she participated to the KEOPS2 experiment, focussing on the physical and biogeochemical processes responsible for huge variability of CO2 partial pressure observed in the Southern Ocean.
